    The upholstery shop that rebuilt/recovered the seat in my '63 GMC suggested a product called "Fresh Cab Rodent Repellant". It's a botanical based product made from Balsam fir that has a scent that is supposed to irritate rodents and drive them away. He showed me he had a package in the trunk and cab of his '52 Chevy. I Googled it and bought mine at Menards. He said it is not an unpleasant odor to humans. My truck is in the shop now, so I can't say personally how well it works. But if a guy that repairs a lot of "moused" seats suggested it, I'm gonna try it. Cost was about $12.00 for 1 box. Box says you can use it in garages, shops, etc. Not harmful to kids and pets. JP

    1 can (303) 1/4 lb. of rice - or an old 1 pound coffee can with the old plastic lid. 1/4 pound of rice. Pierce lid so the elegance of the rice and its inviting aroma attracts the little guys and they gnaw a hole for their size to fit. Place can in open view but somewhat sheltered at one end of shop. Place yourself at other end of shop armed with your trusty Benjamin air rifle in the caliber of choice. (I like a .22 cal. Makes a nice thawp sound when striking them in the head as the attempt to crawl out of the can.

    I used to go visit my dad at his furniture shop for lunch and I would use a BB gun to shoot the mice running around the shop. It was pretty fun.

    Old style spring traps are effective as are the newer glue traps. Buy a Snickers or MilkyWay bar for bait. They have to pull at the caramel and that trips the trap wire plus it has an attractive scent to them. I also load up stored vehicles with Irish Spring dryer sheets. Change them out about every 60 days to keep the smell fresh - some reason mice don't like them. If they dry out though, mice will use them for nest material.
    The problem is not the problem.
    The problem is your attitude about the problem.

    I use a 5 gal bucket, put a hole through the top about 1/2 inch from the top, take a can, I use a empty beer can have several , punch a hole on both ends in the middle. Take a wire or coat hanger, run through the bucket then the can then the other side of the bucket. Make sure it rotates, place in the center of the bucket, put your bait on the can, I use peanut butter, tape the wire so the mice can't push the can to the edge, fill the bucket about 1/3 to 1/2 full of used anti-freeze (mice won't stink when they die) Place near the edge or near you think they will get to they bait. Sit back and enjoy, they will float first then sink after a few days, no stink. I use a old soup strainer to pull them out and through away
